"Hearing one person tell their story gave a completely different perspective to what happened, as it wasn't about statistics or about a nation as a whole, but one person who lost his family and home." ~O. Avery (student)
"Being Jewish In France" to be screened at Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival
Being Jewish in France, written and directed by Yves Jeuland, documents the history of French Jews from the period of the Enlightenment, when they were declared free, equal "brothers" to the virulent anti-Semitism of the Dreyfus affair and the stain of the Vichy regime's treatment of Jews. A startling, comprehensive view of a long love-hate relationship, the film was enormously successful at Lincoln Center earlier this year.
A complimentary French reception during intermission will be provided.
General Admission: $10
Tickets can be purchased via the Film Festival's website
